Falling In Reverse's Ronnie Radke ignites feud with Monuments' Andy Cizek over assault allegations
Ronnie Radke (Falling In Reverse) and Andy Cizek (Monuments, Makari) have been engaged in a social media feud that has continued for the past few days, all starting when Radke was recently accused on Twitter of physically assaulting a woman eight years ago in response to a Loudwire article. Radke has vehemently denied the allegations and defended himself by attacking the accuser online.
Cizek then got involved in the situation and drew Radke's attention, leading to a war of words that can be viewed across social media. Radke bemoaned about smaller bands using his name for attention, as Cizek continued to poke the bear. Radke created a TikTok video and accused then Cizek of slander on Twitter by amplifying the accusations.
Eventually, Radke accused Cizek himself of sexual assault stating "I could literally ruin this guys fucking life" and sharing unsubstantiated DMs on Twitter accusing the Makari vocalist of sexual misconduct. Cizek denied the allegations stating "Not me. Makari had another vocalist before me. There may have been some *behavior* but he has been out of the band for a very long time."
Radke went on to say:
Dudes in bands for 14 years with 7 albums out playing 300 cap venues empty selling 400 dollars in merch telling me my music sucks, have to switch to false allegations and character attacking, you get more likes talking about me than what your band sells in merch NIGHTLY.
Cizek then retweeted his March 9th Tweet stating:
"I will not be intimidated by bullies in the music industry. Our complicity is a big reason why horrible things continue to happen. I am sick of it. I don't care who doesn't like it. This is who I am. This is our space and we have a responsibility to protect it and be better."
